What’s Worse: Candidates or the Coverage They Receive?

There is a clear, even stark, difference between the far-fetched and the absurd, and this difference came to mind as I read a recent New York Times article discussing the extreme politics of some Republican presidential hopefuls. There will be many polls in the coming months speculating on the front-runners and long shots in the Republican party as they seek to put the icing on their political comeback, which began in earnest last fall. Unfortunately, some candidates with bizarre talking points are making their way into the party’s mainstream.
